Carpe Blogiem: Author, Patreon, and Blog Highlights – February 2023


Authorial Highlights

  • GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: Thieves aka Marl Ankh-3 has seen a production copy. It looks amazing.
  • Not much done on the novel, but did do some head-writing and the opening scene.
  • GURPS Whatchamacallit is still being poked in games and remains a very solid book so far.
  • The Fantasy Trip Quick Quest “The Gallery of Hands” is done and remains in the hands of Steve Jackson.
  • My article for Hexagram for The Fantasy Trip came up for Hexagram 11’s Kickstarter!
  • I had a very prominent game designer look at “Short Circuit”…and tell me I invented something that had already been invented. Sigh. Back to the drawing board.
  • Waiting on the contract now for a GURPS supplement I want to write with J. Edward Tremlett.
  • I worked a full month with Haptic writing for the company’s blog. It has been legitimately fun and I think I’m all in with this small start-up. I can see this going places and they paid me more or less what I wanted, when I wanted, how I wanted. This month I’m doing 4 posts.
  • I currently have six outstanding contracts/jobs: GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: Thieves, a fiction novel, a TFT Quick Quest, the Short Circuit dice game, four blog posts for Haptic, and GURPS Whatchamacallit.
  • Total wordcount for March is I hope going to be 20,000 words. I have some non-writing tasks (such as taxes) which is going to eat my soul until I get it done.
